Ethical Shop Gift Guide: Part 2

And just like that, we’re in December and Christmas is merely weeks away. The holiday season is well on its way and the countdown is most definitely on! If like me you blinked and Christmas is almost here, then I’m here to help you with some not-so-last-minute gift ideas.

For the home-bodies out there, delighting in the idea of cosy nights in over the holidays (myself included), puzzles are an ideal present. How about this thought provoking 'All Are Welcome Here!' puzzle that includes positive mantras for living and celebrates diversity. Or see if crafting is their forte by gifting this Make Your Own Beeswax Food Wraps Kit. 


As for me, I particularly love these classically stylish and ever-so practical homeware gifts from Nkuku – like this antique iron hare bottle stopper and these etched mini planters. And I would delight in spending my holiday break working through this cross-stitch guide with an Earth-conscious twist.


If keeping busy in the kitchen sparks joy, make sure they are kitted out with the best selection of spices with these nifty spice drops – perfect for Christmas bakes or curries. If they missed the lockdown bread-making frenzy, they might seize their downtime to try out beer-bread making. Or, for the perfect Boxing Day cheese board, there’s this flavour-packed chutney and jam gift set.


For stocking stuffers, how about a luxurious and refreshing  ‘Christmas Wish’ soap (made in the UK from organic shea butter and olive oil), a thoughtful box of Christmas Wildflower Wishes or the some delicious fairtrade fudge (that's vegan too!).


Fancy a round of bug bingo? This fun game is great for little ones and pairs perfectly with this bug spotter kit and would add a bit of excitement to that Boxing Day walk. Insects not your bag? This palm-oil free gingerbread house kit and the We Are All Greta book are perfect for any budding climate activists.


Finally, don’t forget to look after yourself during the gift-giving season. Stay toasty with Divine’s delectable spiced hot chocolate and this super cosy and cheery Christmas pudding beanie. You can also make wrapping a breeze with these recycled sari present bags.
